Sorry To Cut You Off, Penny

A new theatre work created by Tantrum’s Trajectory Ensemble in collaboration with David Williams.

A dinner party on Federal Election Night 2019 at a share house in Maitland NSW.

Four young women meet to share food and stories, to dance and celebrate a nation on the brink of transformation.
On the menu: Piping hot Potatoes a la Dutton with a side of Malcolm Tabouli.
On the TV: Senator Penny Wong is interrupted for the eighth time.

Throughout the night, the political becomes personal. Optimism mixes with apathy, feminism mixes with fury, and disappointment mixes with vegan chocolate cake.

It’s Don’s Party meets Top Girls. In Maitland, Australia in 2019.

Created by Tantrum’s Trajectory Ensemble in collaboration with David Williams, Sorry to Cut You Off, Penny is a new theatre work about four young women and one election night they may want to forget.
